Lisa Wolpe will bring her internationally acclaimed one-woman show Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender to New York City for one performance at Statera’s National Conference.
An activist as well as a celebrated actress and director, Wolpe’s solo show speaks toward liberation from the “gender box” of expectations, and offers a unique and powerful perspective of courage, resilience and hope against her family’s background of war, suicide and despair.
Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender has played in London at the historic Rose Playhouse as well as Provincetown Women’s Theater Festival, Prague Shakespeare Festival, SpringWorks Festival, Colorado Shakespeare Festival, San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, Orlando Shakespeare Theater, the Great River Shakespeare Festival and at Statera’s 2016 National Conference at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
Lisa took "Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender" to Prague in November 2016. Below is an interview she did at that time with RFE/RL's Salome Asatiani to discuss issues ranging from cross-gender explorations to Shakespeare's undying relevance. Enjoy!
